Alex Baena has reported a punching incident involving Federico Valverde to the police, according to Villarreal.
After the Yellow Submarine’s shocking 3-2 victory over Real Madrid, reports claimed that Valverde had waited in the parking lot to confront Baena about making fun of his wife’s near-miscarriage earlier in 2023. Valverde would purportedly hit Baena as a result of this altercation.

Baena said, “IT IS COMPLETELY FALSE THAT I SAID THAT,”
